A tremendous amount has changed in a few years for our organization. Even though our Recognition 2018 Event will be quite different, please enjoy a video of the Concordance Academy Partners Dinner held in 2015 to better understand the joy of celebrating the journey of our participants and partnerships with our volunteers.
